Email sign-offs: What your email sign-off is really saying when you write "Kind regards"
Here’s what your email sign-off is really saying when you write "Kind regards"
Communication experts Suzanne Bates, President and CEO of Bates Communications, Inc. and author of Speak Like a CEO: Secrets For Commanding Attention and Getting Results, and Cherie Kerr, founder of ExecuProv and author of The Bliss or "Diss" Connection? Email Etiquette For The Business Professional, give their expert insights into this aspect of email correspondence.
Sign-off - "Kind regards"
Bates: This is a great all-purpose business salutation. It may be best for people you have corresponded with in the past.
Kerr: This is one I use quite often. I like some kind of warmth, but also keep it business-like. I tend to use "Kindest regards."
